Midland Metro show off £40m trams to public

Members of the public will get the chance to go on one of the Midland Metro's new trams tomorrow.

£40 million has been spent upgrading the fleet, and five out of a eventual 20 trams are being tested at the main depot in Wednesbury.

They'll be in full service by the summer, but passengers can have an early look at one of the high-tech trams at Birmingham Snow Hill station tomorrow. Chris Halpin reports.
